Oskar Lindholm-Wu, Partner at Procuritas, named Rising Star of European Private Equity

Oskar Lindholm-Wu, a Partner at Procuritas, was named one of the “Rising Stars of Private Equity in Europe” by Private Equity News.  Oskar’s central role in making decisions as one of six partners on Procuritas’s investment committee was recognised by Private Equity News, as were the many investments that he has led. Over the past year, this includes Procuritas’s investment in Medtanken Group and a subsequent a bolt-on acquisition for the business, and the sale of Temporary Space Nordics.

Oskar joined Procuritas in 2012 as an Associate and was promoted to Partner in 2018. He has board roles at DSI, Nature Planet, Medtanken Group and Danthem and has led four investments in Procuritas PCI VI. He also played a pivotal role in Procuritas’s ownership period of the fast-growing European e-commerce company Pierce Group that successfully listed on Nasdaq Stockholm in March 2021.

Researched and compiled by Private Equity News, the Rising Stars list recognises 25 up-and-coming young executives in European private equity who stand out for their achievements to date, investment activity, performance, and potential to reach a position of great influence within their firm and industry.  

The full Rising Stars of Private Equity in Europe list is available to read at Private Equity News.
